Library Instruction

Fall Semester Events

We're offering a series of free workshops on a range of topics including citation managers, open scholarship, and creating a data management plan. See our full fall workshop schedule and our brown bag lunch schedule to find our topics, dates, and presenters.

Library Instruction Classes

Course-integrated, hands-on library instruction classes that support students in locating information and developing skills in information literacy, research skills, and critical thinking are available on request.

Instruction may take place over one or more class periods and may meet in Dimond Library’s Gwynne Daggett Instruction Room (Dimond 421), Studio 235, or in a campus classroom.

To schedule or get more information:

Note: Please have alternate dates in mind and make requests as early as possible to allow for librarian scheduling and class preparation. Instruction session availability can fill up quickly, particularly during certain weeks of the semester.

One-on-One Research Consultations

Librarians are available to help with in-depth research assistance related to course development and individual scholarship and research.

The Reference Desk and Government Information are on Level 3 (Main Floor) in Dimond Library.

The three science and engineering branch libraries are located in Parsons Hall (Chemistry), Kingsbury Hall (Engineering, Math, and Computer Science), and DeMeritt Hall (Physics).

Individual consultations are also available in support of scholarship at all levels. Please contact the appropriate subject librarian to make an appointment.

Research Guides

Online research guides, created in collaboration between faculty members and librarians, collect a variety of subject- or assignment-specific resources in one place.

Guides may be customized to include how to use the library to conduct research, as well as links to discipline-specific databases and websites, multimedia tutorials, citation help, and other support tools.
